In the Interview, Mona said that she has two homes, one in Seattle, one in Beijing, which she misses dearly. She announced that she will fly to Beijing to spend Thanksgiving with Gary Locke next week.

Earlier on Friday (Nov. 22), Apple Daily, a Hong Kong tabloid published an article in which it said Gary Locke was forced to resign because of an affair in Beijing. No detail about the alleged affair was revealed in the report. The rumor was said to have started in a US-based Chinese website and has been circulating on the Internet in China.

Gary Locke also ruled out his presidential bid.

"I don't know what to do next. But I will return to Seattle to be with my family. Family matters most," he said.
